The Untouchables Season
Two Volume One on DVD
August 26 From
CBS/Paramount Home Home
Entertainment Filled With
Grit and Intelligence
August 29, 2008 - The
Untouchables was
considered one of the
most violent television
shows of its time (1959)
and sparked protests
from concerned parents.
The Untouchables chronicles the
campaign of Eliot Ness (Robert
Stack), the young U.S. Prohibition
Bureau agent, to smash the beer
and booze empire of Al Capone in
1920s Chicago. 'The Untouchables'
was a
Desilu production, the
co-presidents of
Desilu were Desi
Arnaz and Lucille Ball.

Nearly fifty years after the series
premiered, "The Untouchables" is
still thoroughly entertaining due
largely to a powerful premise, great
actors, and good writing. The fact
that the show is filmed in black and
white makes the stories all the more
compelling.  A very successful show
that made a star out of Robert Stack
and brought new fame to a Treasury
agent named Eliot Ness.

The hyper-active announcer on The
Untouchables was the voice of the
1930's and '40's newsreels,  Walter
Winchell. The intended continuous
suspense has lost nothing and
intensifies on the DVD collection.  
Just kick back and enjoy the well
written shows. DVD contains 16
episodes; 4-Disc set; Run time over
13 Hours; SRP $39.98.

Courtroom Drama at it's Best With
Raymond Burr as "Perry Mason In
Season
3 Volume 1" on DVD August
19th From CBS/Paramount -- But It's
Awfully Expensive
August 29, 2008 - The show brings back
so many warm memories of 1957.  
Raymond Burr had some good roles in
films but will always be remembered as
Perry Mason. Its mix of drama, noir,
humor and its truly likable characters
made for terrific viewing. Season 3 has
some great episodes, including a case where Paul
was the accused in a twisty tail of blackmail and
murder.

Raymond Burr as Perry Mason the brilliant attorney
always extracts a last-minute confession from the
true killer, usually with the help of loyal secretary
Della Street (Barbara Hale) and cocky private eye
Paul Drake (William Hopper); co-starring William
Talman as DA Hamilton Burger, and Ray Collins as
Lt. Arthur Tragg.  The classic crime series returns all
powerful with Season 3 Vol One but some say the
hefty SRP $49.98 is not fair for only 12 episodes on a
3-Disc set. Run time 624 minutes.

Entertainment Laffs You Back to
1963 With THE BEVERLY
HILLBILLIES Second Season
DVD  Oct 7th
October 7, 2008 - Several
series tried to be funny
based on the
misunderstanding
principal  but  The Beverly
Hillbillies did it first, and
funniest.  
The show immediately shot to the
top of the Nielsen Ratings shortly
after its premiere in 1962 and stayed
there for several seasons earning
some of the highest ratings ever
recorded for a half-hour sitcom.

Jed Clampett (Buddy Ebsen) and his
kinfolk,  the poor Ozark Hillbilly family
barely surviving until one lucky day  
while hunting for food in his swamp
he missed his target and struck the
ground with a bullet and as the song
goes   "up through the ground came
a bubblin' crude, oil that is, black
gold, texas tea."

Jed sold his swamp to the OK Oil
Company for $25 Million and moved
his family in to a to-die-for 36 room
mansion in Beverly Hills.

Jed then put his money and
confidence into the hands of  
Commerce Bank of Beverly Hills with
(Raymond Bailey) as his greedy
banker Milburn Drysdale. Each
hilarious episode revolves around
the misunderstanding culture clash
between the Clampetts and a
uppidty Beverly Hills mentality.

Created by TV maverick Paul
Henning (Petticoat Junction, The
George Burns & Gracie Allen Show)  
this is the first DVD season of the
show available. Season One  
apparently is in public domain with
selected episodes appearing in a

Now Available on DVD From Shout Factory  -
The Series Gave Jobs to Blacks - A theme song
From Quincy Jones & Ironside's Driver/Legs
Played by Black Actor  Don Mitchell
October 7, 2008 - Just a year removed
from "Perry Mason", Raymond Burr
became flawlessly outstanding as
former San Francisco Chief of Detectives
Robert T. Ironside returning to the police
force as a consultant  following a
shooting from a sniper's bullet that left
him disabled and wheelchair bound, in "Ironside".  
Raymond Burr's portrayal of the most famous lawyer
in TV history, Perry Mason ended 1966.

"Ironside" the series consistently delivers memorable
characters, brilliant acting, and well-crafted stories
coupled with unforgettable theme music written by
Quincy Jones.

Another standout quality about the series is the fact
that Ironside hired Mark Sanger, a delinquent young
Black man with a chip on his shoulder and hatred for
the police portrayed by Don Mitchell, as his
legs/driver.  Mark Sanger eventually goes to law
school and becomes an attorney.

The episodes take an unflinching look at social
issues of the 60s and 70s including racial strife, the
war in Vietnam and drug use.  Ironside also drafted
two young law enforcement officers Detective Sgt. Ed
Brown, portrayed by Don Galloway, and Officer Eve
Whitfield, portrayed by Barbara Anderson as staff to
work cases with him. Soon the barely civil relationship
between Ironside and Mark deepens to a close
friendship and the three staff members become
Ironside's true family.  Nominated for two Golden
Globes and Ten Emmy Awards, the pioneering TV
classic is now available in an 8-Disc DVD box set
from Shout Factory, S.R.P. $59.98, run time over 23

continues the
groundbreaking
episodes that made this
show fun and exciting to
watch with its eclectic guest stars,
sometimes complicated plots, and
skillful use of the con the bad guys   
approach.  Peter Graves, Greg Morris,
Peter Lupus and Leonard Nimoy
return but Barbara Bain left at the end
of Season Three and has been
replaced with pretty newcomer  
Lesley Ann Warren.  The great
pleasure of the series is watching the
missions played out and how they're
presented to the audience. Although
each mission's purpose is clearly
explained, the strategies for
accomplishing them are not, and that
generates suspense as the
television audience goes into these
missions with only the vaguest idea
how the team will pull their missions
off, and that makes for perfect
viewing, especially on DVD.  The
6-Disc DVD box set includes all 23
episodes of Season Five in color, run
time is over 19 Hours, S.R.P.
$54.99.Guest stars include Sal
Mineo, Davis Roberts, Robert Conrad.
